Venetian Art Glass Red Wine Aerator

Dramatic Red Wine Aerator -- a devise for exposing wine to the air, allowing it to "breathe," and a fascinating way of pouring the wine through any one of the three side spouts. As long as you don't fill the container over about half-full, the spouts do not compete when pouring. Another function of this unusual serving vessel is for use in making, serving Wine Punch, or "punzone del vino" in Italian. Measures about 7.75" tall, 10.25" diameter base, 3.25" center opening rim diameter. Pale topaz with a hint of apricot coloring in the glass; sharp pontil mark. Excellent undamaged condition with very slight interior signs of use, and a couple of internal bubbles in the glass, original to manufacture.
